“drkrm is pleased to announce “Common Ground: New American Street Photography” and will feature the work of 5 contemporary American photographers that are changing the nature of street photography and giving us yet another way to view the world. The exhibition will be on view from July 6 through July 27, 2013 with an opening reception on Saturday, July 6th from 7-10pm.
Common Ground is curated by Stephen McLaren, co-author of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson, 2010); The exhibition will feature photography by highly-accomplished American street photographers Jack Simon, Bryan Formahls, Chuck Patch, Blake Andrews and Richard Bram. Each of these photographers is currently working at a highly-creative level in cities as diverse as San Francisco, New York, Eugene, Los Angeles and New Orleans. The impressive bodies of work they are accumulating shows that street photography, as an energetic and highly- adaptable, photographic genre, remains an integral force in American photographic culture.
Street Photography’s “common ground” is the century-old tradition of using one’s natural inquisitiveness and camera skills to show us new facets of life and reveal poetry within the world around us. Each of the featured photographers eschew models, props and exotic locations and instead rely on their speed of thought and their ability to arrange fragments of time and space into beguiling images. The images featured in the exhibition demonstrate a wide range of styles and camera formats, but it is each photographer’s highly-individual way of seeing the world and recording it which exemplifies how creative street photography can be when pursued by dedicated photographers.”
